Jack’s Camp is set in a palm “island” overlooking the tall grass fields surrounding the pans. The Makgadikgadi lake dried up thousands of years ago. Lying south east of the Okavango Delta and surrounded by the Kalahari Desert, the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans is a system of pans with sandy desert in between.
Spectacular vistas, expert guiding, incredibly friendly habituated meerkats, unique desert wildlife, old-world safari styling and superb cuisine all come together to create an experience that is completely different to any other.
Guests facilities include a Mess Tent with a renowned Natural History Museum built into it! There is a library, antique pool table and well stocked drinks chest, while a refreshing swimming pool is housed in a beautiful tent with deck and deck chairs.
Jack’s Camp features 7 Twin and 3 Double tents with en-suite bathrooms featuring indoor and outdoor showers. They are spacious and stylish with a sophisticated 1940’s safari atmosphere.
